Helen, Georgia Romantic Cabins

by James Rada, Jr.

Helen, Georgia, is a small town in the northern part of the state that is just a day trip from Atlanta. The town is in the Blue Ridge Mountains and near the Chattahoochee River, offering plenty of outdoor activities for couples to do together. When night falls, couples can retreat back to one of the many cabins in the area. A large number of these cabins are privately owned and rented through agencies, but others are part of resorts.

Cedar Creek Cabin Rentals

Many of the cabins come with king-size beds and hot tubs that offer scenic views of the Sautee and Nacoochee valleys. The cabins are isolated to give couples privacy for their romantic getaway. Amenities vary among the cabins because they are privately owned, but they have stocked kitchens and porches with hot tubs, where couples can snuggle together to enjoy the views.
